Therapy & Support Groups

Groups provide an opportunity to work through a variety of concerns within a person’s life while receiving support, gaining insight, learning and practicing new behaviors, and increasing self-esteem. In group therapy, you have the opportunity to:

  • Increase your self-awareness and focus energy into aspects of your life you wish to change.
  • Try out new behaviors and experiment with new ideas.
  • Express feelings you are hesitant to express and assert yourself in new ways.
  • Learn from other group members (and group facilitators) by getting feedback and finding out how others perceive you.

All groups are free to students who have paid student fees.
